Yr 11/13 TAG information 2022

Dear Parent/Carer

We fully expect examinations to go ahead in 2022 for Year 11 and Year 13 students and will continue to prepare for this. If examinations cannot go ahead in summer 2022 because of further COVID disruption, the government has decided that examination grades will instead be determined by teachers, using a Teacher Assessed Grade (TAG) approach. We have been asked to collect formal assessment data throughout this school year which will be used to determine TAGs if exams are cancelled. These supervised assessments will be held under timed exam-like conditions and have been designed to support learning and preparation for examinations if they do take place.

If a student who receives reasonable adjustments in examinations because of a disability (such as extra time to complete an assessment, supervised rest breaks or use of a reader or scribe) then they will be provided with this support during the assessment[s]. If something happens before, or during an assessment that might have affected performance in the assessment then you should let the school know as soon as possible.

We will be in touch in the Spring Term if it is looking increasingly likely that examinations are looking unlikely regarding next steps.
